Fog Lights?
 
Hey guys, I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, and currently it didn't come with Fog Lights, but I was looking underneath the front where the Fog Lights WOULD go, but it was just a grille like pattern. I was looking around the ole' inter-webs and came across some very sexy Halo Fog Lights, now my question is for the experts here, Is it possible for me to cut out the plastic and place the Halo Lights in there, and wire them?

I've never done any wiring or any work with electronics(besides some computer work) but thanks for reading! :-D

Can you post a link to the ones you're looking at? If they are the round ones mounted into a black plastic frame to match the shape of your fog lamp opening, I've heard the output is pretty crappy on those.

I'd probably only have them for the looks to be honest :-P
I'm just one of those Halo Light guys xD

That's a sweet combo...just make sure you're cool with them being LED halo's. I ended up buying a second set because I wanted the CCFL halo's.

Heh, are you talking about the headlights, or fog lights? The headlights, I was going to upgrade to HID ones so they get a bit brighter

No, no...I'm talking about the rings themselves...the halos. They have some that are illuminated by a pair or a single LED, and then they have the CCFL ones which are basically flourescent tubes. Much brighter and more even light than a single LED reflected around a clear goo ring. Do some homework so you make sure you get what you want the first time unlike me who ended up buying two pairs of everything :)

Here's when I installed mine:

Ah I'll just make do for now xD, I haven't found any headlights that are CCFL and are Smoke instead of black :-/

This is my first car mod, and first car so I'll just have some fun xD
Thanks for being so helpful by the way, haven't met nice people on the internet in a LONG time!

Hahah seems that way so far! Are your headlights the "Black version" and not the "Smoke" correct?

Correct...clear lens on mine.

I like the "smoked" look too, but more for tails. Anything forward-facing I like as crystal clear as possible...that's just me.

I got mine from carid.com. I don't care that they're not bright during the day cause they look real sharp at night. Like a "sleeper" and to me, my Jeep is a Jeep, it's not an Audi or Beemer.
